It was a clear and sunny morning with temperatures in the single
digits.  There was about 4-5 inches of snow on the ground, but the
trail had been plowed by the Park and Rec Department.

This did not stop 32 hearty souls coming out to compete in the
January Nielson Challenge.  Just like last month, only one person
ran under his handicap.  And just like last month, it was Dean Buck.
Thus Dean walked away as champion for the 2nd consecutive month.

In cold weather, can anyone besides Dean run under their handicap?
Will Dean defend his 2-month consecutive championship?  Will there
be snow again next month?  If you make a snow angel, and then the
snow melts, have you killed an angel?  Come out and join us for the
next Nielson Challenge in February for answers to all of these questions
and more.
